The Antidepressant Skills Workbook
This free online workbook, available in Punjabi, gives an overview of depression, explains how it can be effectively managed according to the best available research, and gives a step-by-step guide to changing patterns that trigger depression.
In this self-care guide, we show how to use cognitive and behavioural methods to make important changes in thinking and actions that help one to emerge from depression and make it less likely to recur. These methods can be used in combination with depression treatments, increasing their effectiveness. Developed by the Centre for Applied Research in Mental Health and Addiction/BC Mental Health and Addiction Services.
